    CHANI, IN VOICEOVER: Arrakis, my planet, is forged in sand but also blood. The spice, a sacramental rite of my persevering clan, is pillaged by a remorseless empire and its jealous Padishah Emperor. The land and its people ravaged by the blood-thirsty Harkonnen, they look towards a fabled voice from the outer world who will lead them to paradise.

    CUT TO:

    PAUL ATREIDES, SPOTTING DUNCAN IDAHO: Duuude, what’s up?

    When a filmmaker holds on each shot for so long that the entirety of the film forever burrows its way deep into your consciousness... that’s a Tsai-op.

    I don’t think there’s a world where the noxious, cutesy accents of the script (the Hubba Bubba gum, the squirt gun, everything Chris Evans is doing, etc.) work on screen, but there’s probably a world where someone other than the Russos manages to makes them a little less DOA. Hard to believe they were involved in this script when the direction has so little interest in the tone as written.
